Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register   allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that were approved in the European Union (EU)/European Economic Area (EEA) under the Clinical Trials Directive 2001/20/EC
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU/EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development

  • EU/EEA interventional clinical trials approved under or transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 are publicly accessible through the
    Clinical Trials Information System (CTIS).

    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   43974   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7311   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.   The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).

    Phase 1 trials conducted solely on adults and that are not part of an agreed paediatric investigation plan (PIP) are not publicly available (see Frequently Asked Questions ).  
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    to evaluate the efficacy of gabapentin as adjunctive therapy to morphine in the treatment of severe chronic neuropathic or mixed pain in children
    from 3 months to less than 18 years of age assessed by the difference in average pain scores between treatment arms at the end of the treatment
    L'obiettivo primario di questo studio è quello di valutare l'efficacia del gabapentin come terapia aggiuntiva alla morfina per il trattamento del dolore cronico severo di origine neuropatica o mista nei bambini da 3 mesi a meno di 18 anni di età. L’efficacia è misurata come differenza delle valutazioni medie del dolore tra i due trattamenti alla fine del periodo di terapia.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    1.To assess the effect of gabapentin as adjunctive therapy to morphine compared to morphine alone on quality of life (physical, emotional, social and school functioning) and
    global satisfaction with treatment.
    2.To assess the safety of gabapentin combined with morphine compared to morphine alone in the treatment of severe neuropathic or mixed pain
    in children from 3 months to less than 18 years of age.
    3.To characterise the population pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PKPD) relationship of gabapentin liquid formulation with and without
    morphine and provide confirmation of the recommended paediatric dose.
    Additional exploratory objectives of the study are:
    4.To explore the metabolomic profile of drug treatments.
    5.To explore genetic polymorphisms and their impact on pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD).
    1. Valutare l’effetto del gabapentin come terapia aggiuntiva alla morfina in confronto con la morfina tal quale sulla qualità di vita (fisica, emotiva, sociale e scolastica) e il livello di soddisfazione globale dovuto al trattamento.
    2. Valutare la sicurezza del gabapentin in combinazione con morfina in confronto con la morfina in terapia singola, nel trattamento del dolore cronico severo di origine neuropatica o mista nei
    bambini da 3 mesi a 18 anni di età non compiuti.
    3.Caratterizzare la relazione farmacocinetica-farmacodinamica di popolazione (PK/PD) della formulazione liquida di gabapentin con e senza morfina e fornire la conferma della dose pediatrica raccomandata.
    Obiettivi esplorativi addizionali allo studio sono:
    4. Descrivere il profilo di metabolomica in seguito ai trattamenti farmacologici.
    5. Esplorare i polimorfismi genetici e il loro impatto sulla farmacocinetica (PK) e farmacodinamica (PD).
